Marin’s diverse geography includes everything from urban area to seashore, freeways to mountains. Many of the towns, cities and unincorporated areas are so different from one another, they even have their own weather patterns. This month we look at Old Tiburon, also known as Lyford Cove.
“After the views and proximity to downtown, we love our neighbors who willingly share the tricky parking on our cow paths that pass for streets.” Fran Wilson, resident
“We are in a perfect microclimate, which is subtropical, and many varieties of subtropical plants grow here, including angel’s trumpet.” Courtney and Sandy Anderson, residents
“We love the ever-changing views of the bay in our cove, which is largely protected from wind and fog.” Preston Petty, owner of Blinds & Designs
